Adam Carolla: Adam Carolla is one of the most versatile men in Hollywood. After cutbacks forced Adam to quit his syndicated self titled “Adam Carolla Show” broadcast on CBS radio, Adam started “The Adam Carolla Podcast” with only a computer and a microphone from his home office in Feb. 2009. A year later, the podcast was been named iTunes #1 Podcast Of 2009, receives more than five million downloads a month, and has been featured in Fast Company Magazine, Entrepreneur, the NY times, and the LA times. His immediate success prompted Adam to launch an entire online network, ACE Broadcasting in February 2010, which produces many of iTunes top podcast. Most recently, Carolla wrapped production on a new NBC pilot with Executive Producer Daniel Kellison, and Jimmy Kimmel. Currently, Adam is writing a novel of his famous rants for Crown Publishing which will hit shelves this fall. Before running his own online empire, Adam hosted the “Adam Carolla Show” broadcast, which aired on CBS radio stations in Los Angeles, Portland and Las Vegas. The four- hour weekday morning program was syndicated in several major markets, including Seattle, Sacramento and Fresno, among others. Carolla wrote, co-produced and stared in the independent boxing feature film The Hammer. The Hammer made its world premiere at the 2007 Tribecca Film Festival in New York. Earlier this year Carolla was seen as a contestant on ABC’s hit reality series “Dancing with the Stars.” Additionally, Carolla has hosted Comedy Central's "Too
Late with Adam Carolla" and starred in TLC's "The Adam Carolla Project," which chronicled the renovation and subsequent sale of his boyhood home. Following brief stints as a skilled carpenter and boxing trainer, he began his career in radio after
answering an ad seeking a boxing instructor to train then radio personality Jimmy Kimmel of KROQ's KEVIN AND BEAN SHOW in Los Angeles. He eventually joined the show's repertoire as Mr. Birchum, a woodshop teacher. Carolla's success on KROQ led to a hosting job on the nationally syndicated radio program "Loveline," with Dr. Drew Pinsky. MTV developed a television version of the show, which was co-hosted by Carolla and Pinsky for five seasons (1996-2000). The duo also authored The Dr. Drew and Adam Book: A Survival Guide to Life and Love. With their partner Daniel Kellison, Carolla and Kimmel are the heads of Jackhole Industries and have created and starred in two hit Comedy Central shows, "The Man Show" (1999-2003) and "Crank Yankers" (2002-present). Jackhole Industries also executive produced "Gerhard Reinke's Wanderlust," a comedy travel show which aired on Comedy Central, and a reality-based feature film, Windy City Heat,
which won The Comedia Award for Best Film at the 2004 Montreal Just For Laughs comedy festival. A native of Southern California, Carolla currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Lynette, and their two twins.
